The Belly Fat Curse
Looking for ways to get rid of belly fat, inner/outer thighs and rear end. Keep in mind I can't do any exercise for at least 4 more weeks due to surgery. Even though I welcome any and all input I can use after that.

Does CLA really work or is all hype?

I didn't see any change with cla except that I stopped losing weight, my clothes didn't change....

I have been having this same problem. I started on the CLA and have lost two inches in my waist.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid, which is alleged to burn up to a pound of body fat per week.

My take on it, after reading what Mark Sisson has to say, is that there's a lot of different CLA's, and it is hard to find a supplement with the right ones in it, because some enhance fat loss (which is good) and some promote a rise in LDL/total cholesterol ratio, triglycerides, and insulin (which is bad and may negate the effects of the fat loss effect of supplement CLA, because of the metabolic whack-out.)

Sisson goes on to say that generous use of beef and dairy, particulary grass-fed, provides the right kind of CLA to promote healthy metabolism, and that the supplements may not, depending on the one you pick.

Just my 2 cents, and I don't take the stuff so other folks will know more than I do about it.

I take CLA and have noticed a loss in the belly area but whether it's due to CLA or continuing to lose inches no one really knows in my opinion. But, I will continue to take it just in case

There are quite a few threads on CLA here on the forum. Here is one:

Yeah, I wish my thread wasn't moved. It wasn't so much about CLA but ways to lose belly fat. Best exercises, foods, ect.... CLA was just thrown in because I heard about it.
